“Authentic, observational comedy presented beautifully. Pleasingly original” – Broadway Baby ****
Back by popular demand, again as MC, is the delightful Troy Hawke. Milo McCabe’s latest comic incarnation is quite superb. Troy is an RP speaking, cravat wearing 1940s dandy who is on an admirable mission to change the world. He is a lovable fool with a dash of sophistication. Also he’s blisteringly funny. When a comic says he has ‘audience badinage’ you know you are in for a treat.
“Consummately entertaining and enviably talented.” – Broadway Baby
